Austin Stitchery Guild

Austin, Texas



An outgrowth of a small group of local needlepointers, the Austin Stitchery Guild became a chapter of the Embroiderers' Guild of America in January 1976, with only 35 members. With a membership in excess of 300, Guild members' interest encompass many areas of embroidery, including needlepoint, counted cross stitch, blackwork, quilting, applique, smocking, French handsewing, drawn and pulled thread work, Hardanger embroidery and more.

Since 1976, the guild has held 13 successful Needlework Festivals, which have made possible workshops with nationally recognized experts in a variety of stitching techniques. Stitchers of all levels of ability are welcome. Lectures, workshops, correspondence courses, national and regional seminars, exhibits and study/interest groups are offered. All chapter members are invited to attend any chapter activity.

PURPOSE: To promote excellence in the art of embroidery, which is defined as the embellishment of woven fabric with decorative stitches done with a needle with an eye.
